Week 247 Menu

Happy Monday everyone!  This weekend was very nice and relaxing.  We got to stay home and watch General Conference instead of going to church yesterday. 

We celebrated Conference weekend by making crepes for breakfast.  I don't make them very often because it takes so long for me to cook enough to fill up my family.  My seven year old woke me up yesterday and said, "Can you make them now, Mom?"  Nothing like a little nutella filled crepe for breakfast.  Actually, my favorite way to fill a crepe is a little nutella, peanut butter and banana.  Yum!

I loved popping my last chicken pot pie from my freezer stash into the oven and having a yummy dinner without dirtying tons of dishes.  Someday soon I'll post about my stash of freezer meals.

To top off our sugar filled day yesterday, we made brownie pudding for dessert.  Have you ever had brownie pudding?  It's a fun recipe to make with kids.  Actually, my daughter made it by herself.  After it's baked it looks like a brownie on top, but underneath the brownie crust is yummy, chocolate pudding.  Perfect with vanilla ice cream.

My baby is starting to really crawl (instead of scooting backwards) and is cutting his first teeth.  I've forgotten about the joys of teething (and how it keeps babies up at night).

Menu time...

Monday:  Swedish meatballs (prepped and ready to be cooked in the freezer), steamed potatoes from my garden w/IKEA gravy

Tuesday:  pizza, maybe this BBQ Chicken pizza again

Wednesday: tacos

Thursday: BBQ chicken tinfoil dinners (from freezer)

Friday: hashbrown, sausage, egg bake

Saturday: orange chicken, rice, steamed veggies

Sunday:  bistro chicken, garlic mashed potatoes

What are you making this week?  Have a great week!

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
